Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Silves, Portugal your home away from home

Silves, the ancient capital of the Algarve, has evidence of settlements on the land reaching back to 1,000BC, and the old town is awash with fascinating sites from throughout the ages! Surrounded by rich colours of orange orchards and almond groves, the town of Silves is a sleepy town surrounded by the rolling foothills of the Monchique Mountains, perfect for an exploration and investigation of the Algarve.

Things to do on holiday in Silves, Portugal

Although many of the town’s most important historical remains were destroyed during the 1755 earthquake, the impressive sandstone Silves Castle remained strong, due to the huge Moorish walls which support it. Silves Castle is the largest castle in the Algarve, and is certainly among the most beautiful. The Museu Arqueologico has managed to collate and display various artefacts from throughout the town’s history, and pieced them together for visitors to get a clearer understanding of Silves’ history and influence. The Roman Ponte Romana and 13th Century Cathedral also make for interesting viewing if you have the time whilst staying in a Silves property.

Despite a huge amount being made out of Silves’ ancient heritage, there is much more to taking accommodation in Silves than touring historical sites. A Silves property or villa in Silves’ outskirts is the perfect base for golfing holidays to the Algarve or for exploration of the Algarve. Centrally located, accommodation in Silves can be used for holidays in the beach, in the Sierra de Monichique or exploring the large Algarve towns of Loule, Portimao, Albufeira or Lagoa. The famous Algarve beaches of Carvoeiro are just a 15 minute drive from self catering accommodation in Silves, with all their attractions and sports facilities.

The golf courses of Vale de Milho, Quinta do Gramacho and Vale da Pinta can all be reached very easily from a Silves villa too. There are public courses dotted across the countryside, so finding a round from Silves accommodation will not prove difficult.

Places to holiday in Silves, Portugal

Lagoa is only 8km from accommodation in Silves, and is one of the most picturesque towns you will be able to find in Portugal. Located at the summit of one of the coastal hills, Lagoa is also a magnificent base for golf and sightseeing, and the golden beaches of Ferragudo and Carvoeiro are just miles away.

Weather in Silves, Portugal

Summers in Silves are very warm, and Silves villas with pools are hugely sought after during June, July and August. Temperatures from October until April are cooler, but remain blissfully warm, with monthly averages staying between 15 and 22˚C, perfect for walking, golfing or cycling throughout the area.

Flights to Silves, Portugal

Located just 30 minutes from Faro Airport (FAO), a holiday villa in Silves is very easily reached. Faro receives multiple daily flights from across the UK, provided by a range of luxury or ‘no frills’ airlines. When you arrive in Faro, it is probably a good idea to take a hire car, not only to reach your accommodation in Silves, but also so that you can easily reach the beaches or attractions in the Silves area without having to rely on public transport, meaning you can get the most from the flexibility and space provided by taking a private Silves property for your holiday.

The villa was spotless and had all the home comforts and practical bits and bobs needed for a brilliant family break. What was also special was the attention to detail provided in the form of little notes dotted around on general "stuff" to do with the villa and area which really helped us acclimatize quickly. The pool area is as described in other reviews....fab. Large, clean and safe with remarkable views across the valley towards Silves castle and even further to the coastline. We ventured out a few times to the "resorts" which were as you would expect.....busy, busy, busy but worth seeing. Vilamoura Pitch and Putt was fun followed by a walk around the marina followed by a bowl of pasta. Lagos was also very nice but to be honest we were more than happy grabbing what we needed from the local Silves markets (and of course "Lidl") getting back to the villa pool/BBQ and chilling out enjoying the really hot sunshine then the gorgeous sunsets and awesome views. Back to the Villa - we had a couple of minor (very minor) maintenance issues which were jumped on by the Managing Agent and sorted really quickly by a lovely English "fix it man". The lady who came to clean the Villa (forgive me but her name now escapes me) was lovely and went about her work with pride and speed. The Villa has everything in it to keep you entertained if you did feel the need to sit inside which we didn't. Didn't turn the TV on for the whole 2 weeks which was great although the kids did enjoy rest bite from the sun every now and again to catch up on their Ipad fixes.... All in all one of the best holidays we have had and that's from all of our family which included kids aged at 8/10 and 12 years old. Only regret - not being able to persuade the kids too sleep out on the roof terrace to watch the shooting stars............ A "sincere" thank you Deborah to you and your team - hopefully be back to explore more of Silves.
